Ordained for each one spot should prove 
Beloved over all.

made this book possible, we 
dedicate this page. 

The Annual Board. 

Paul G. Chandler 

Our coach. Who could think of 
a better occupation than coach at 
K. S. N. C. Ask anyone who 
knows him what they think of him. 

Sylvia Ledinsky 

The musical spirit presiding at 
Assembly. Never too busy to help 
you along with a musical idea (if 
you have one). 

May H. Prentice

big or little, and she is always 
ready to help them.

and true friend to it. 

Marjorie Borne 

"Haven't you had Library Econ- 
omy? Well, I'll help you this 
time." Every time she says this.

pleasing this sounds when you 
have annoyed her for two days 
and say, "Thank you." 

Margaret Dunbar 

The presiding spirit who watches 
over the students in the library so 
they will not get "bewildered." 
We appreciate her care even tho 
we haven't shown it all the time.

We get much from our training 
with Mrs. Olson, but we must work 
for it. "Be gone dull care, I'm 
busy." "See me" is her favorite

She loves little children, but can 
keep the big ones as well as little

It is not every school that can 
boast of a talented musician and 
singer. We are proud to count 
Miss Shamel among oar number

The presiding spirit in the hospi- 
tal where we take all our pains 
and aches to be doctored up.

likes to keep one guessing but in 
the end he gives the right answer. 


Miss Bayliss, our Dean of Women.

troubles no matter how small or 
how large. One does well to fol-

As I stand at your portal this fair summer day, 
And look over the hills where the road winds away. 
To far countries and cities and foreign resorts, 
Where money and trouble and fame of all sorts 
May be mine, for the asking, if I in return 
Give a small part of that I've had chance here to learn ; 
I pause, and look back as these thots come to me, 
What have I given you as I've gained much from thee? 

You have opened some secrets of science to me, 
You have shown me from books many wonders that be. 
You have broadened my vision and given ideals, 
You have granted me friendship which true faith reveals. 
You have made my life richer by these gifts from you 
While I've laughed and I've danced and I've sung a bit too. 
You have woven for me a most beautiful dream, 
While have I gained for you ought of this world's esteem ? 

Have I lifted the load for a single soul here ? 
Have I helped make this school to any more dear ? 
Have I carried the joy and the cheer in my heart, 
That has made some one happy because of my part? 
As I step from your portal out into new fields 
Have I others led onward to higher ideals ? 
If I have, I sing gladly these lines e'er so crude, 
And let years that will follow prove my gratitude.

Class History 

On Monday, September 22, 1919, a new group of girls arrived at 
K. S. N. C. It was registration day and the old students could easily be 
detected because they went about with an air of ownership, while we, the 
new-comers, had a look of awe, wonder and distraction, all mingled in one. 
But the "greenness" soon wore off and we entered into all the activities, 
social affairs and duties with our newly acquired dignity and, with or 
without the help of our "big sisters," carried them out successfully. 

The class was soon organized. Donna Bigalow was elected president ; 
Florence Points, assistant, while Isabella Collins kept the books and had 
charge of the finances. All too soon the year rolled away bringing with 
it several cases of smallpox, a week's unexpected vacation on account of 
lack of coal, entertainments and athletics. June came and with it the 
realization that when we returned in the fall we would be Seniors. 

The fall of 1920 found us back with smiles and hearty welcomes for 
old friends. But this time the new students registered the day before we 
did and consequently we did not enjoy seeing their expressions and hearing 
their first comments. This year brought with it duties just a little harder 
but the ways and means of accomplishing them a little more familiar and 
consequently easier. 

A class meeting was held a few days after arriving and new officers 
were elected. Lyda Marshall became president ; Lulu Drake, vice president, 
and Marian Jayne, secretary-treasurer. Plans for the coming year were 
discussed and the class colors, blue and white, were re-adopted, having 
been selected near the end of the Junior year. An annual board committee 
was chosen with faculty advisors. In order to help finance the Annual, 
we volunteered to canvass the town, when the yearly entertainments were 
given, providing we received a part of the proceeds. This was granted 
and we did our duty faithfully. 

Basketball attracted many of the girls and we did excellent work in 
the inter-class games. Our parties and dances were always successful and 
the tasteful decorations showed the artistic ability of the class. Especially 
interesting were the Hallowe'en Party, the Program Dance, and the 
Balloon Party. 

Time soon rolled by and June and Commencement have arrived amid 
the roses and the tears. How different it seems from a year ago ! Now 
we are the "honor guests" and the social functions are given for us. To us 
all eyes are turned. Have all Seniors been like us? Are we as fine as 
all the others have been, my classmates? 

Hail and farewell to you, Kent College, may you continue to bless 
the lives of other young people as you have blessed ours. We, your 
children of 1921, pledge our hearts and our hands to your support and 
your prosperity. 



I was sitting on a cold gray stone. The mist swirled slowly about me. 
There was no wind. My eyes grew heavy from the long trials of trying 
to pierce the choking gloom. No use attempting to find my way home 
when I could not even see my feet. In despair I began to weep. 

After what seemed hours to me I became calmer. I felt myself 
strangely stricken with dumbness. Slowly the mist began rising — so 
slowly I felt I must scream aloud. Soon it was light, lighter than mid-day. 

In the distance there appeared two tiny specks. As they came nearer 
I saw that they were cupids. They fluttered up to me and in the tiniest 
voices imaginable, chimed in chorus — "What are you doing in this Land 
of What Is to Be?" 

Somehow I found courage enough to make reply and told them that I 
was an outcast from the Class of '21, of Kent State Normal College, and 
could not return until I had found what was to be the future of each 
member of that illustrious class. 

I looked up. The cupids had vanished. "How silly to believe in 
fairies," I murmured. As I stood up I heard the flapping of wings, and 
looking behind me I saw Father Time. In his arms he carried a huge 
book. In a voice deep though gentle he said : "Little girl, what have you 
done to deserve the favor about to be bestowed upon you? Few mortals 
see the pages of the future. Only I can make the pictures thereon visible 
to human eyes. Speak mortal." 

With a voice that trembled so it was scarcely audible I answered: 
"I have handed in all the reference work and am a Senior of Kent State 
Normal College." 

Having finished speaking I was almost overcome by my boldness and 
scarcely dared breathe for fear I had displeased the master of my fate. 
For an eternity he stared at me, then slowly he placed the ponderous 
volume before me. 

It would be impossible to describe the wonderful visions I saw, but 
in brief this is what I learned : 

Donna Bigalow was in India, an understudy of Pavlowa, making an 
attempt to convert the heathen to classic dancing and Greek culture. 

In a cozy love cottage Lulu Drake waited impatiently for a newly 
acquired husband — a prominent physician I think. 

Isibella Collins was always a true pioneer in spirit. She was teaching 
a mission school in the mountains of Kentucky and dipped snuff like a 
true native, while her pupils struggled with "Why we reduce to lowest 
terms," by Gladys Stackhouse. 

Flo Points was governor of Ohio. I always said she had executive 

If I give you a million guesses you could never guess what Lyda 


Marshall was doing. She had married the mayor of Canton. "Charlie" 
seemed to run things, including their 1930 model Ford machine. 

Peg Nye was married too. The grounds around their home were 
beautifully kept, due to "his" training at the Davy Institute, I have no 

Helen Kucklick and Agnes Kalt were actresses of no little fame on 
the legitimate stage. 

Margaret Wilson was a famous concert pianiste with a dark-haired 
man always near. 

Wonders will never cease ! Dignified proper Laura Miller was a 
bareback rider. Harry Jacobs was ring master. Lenora Randall was a 
snake charmer. 

Isn't it queer that Maud Minor and Gladys Swinehart never married? 
They founded an exclusive "Home for Bachelor Girls !" 

Uritta Porter had married a dark university man of Iowa. 

Madge Webster had become a noted interior decorator, due to practice 
in Moulton Hall, I believe. 

Margaret Martin was head of the U. S. Woman's Suffrage League. 

Helen Robertson and Orene Sherman were ardent workers in the 
Child Welfare movement. 

Betty Phelan and Virgil Reed were married and had two little 
bungalows out in Turtle Dove addition. Nellie Shannon was thinking 
seriously of making her future home nearby. 

Margaret Downing had charge of the K. S. N. C. lunch room — and 
dreams come true ! She served pie every single blessed day. 

Katherine Owens was head of the U. S. Aviation Corps and was the 
most daring "airman" the United States has ever known. 

Myrtie Maneely had charge of a fresh air kindergarten. 

Mary Conroy and Clorine Murray bad invented a new heat'ng system 
for the dormitories. Goodness knows they needed it badly enough. Of 
course Moulton Hall is the best dorm on the campus, but the Boys' dormi- 
tory planned by Mrs. Culp was an attractive modern building. 

Our class was represented in every branch of stage work. Hazel 
MacLennan was in the movies and drew a larger crowd than Norma 
Talmadge ever did. Igerna Barth was her director. 

A settlement school in New York has for its supervisor Miss Rose 

Can you imagine Mike Jacobs pushing a perambulator around? He 
nearly got run over one day but Nellie Morgan rescued him. Nellie was 
traffic cop and looked stunning in her uniform with all those brass buttons ! 

If you want to read something clever, get the June number of the 
"Current Opinion" and read Mona Fletcher's new play. 

John Welser was a prominent lawyer. Nadine McNeil and Anna 
Myers were famous scientists. Bessie Frye was editor of The Columbus 
Dispatch. Didn't we have talent though? 

Our plump smiling Edith Jacobs was not exactly allied with the 
royalty, although she served "The King of Her Home" and a little "Auto- 
crat of the Breakfast Table." 

Mrs. Damon was K. S. N. C. librarian and once in a while she allowed 
someone to talk in the library! Just think of it! 

Kathleen Boyd had just returned from a concert tour abroad. Her 
purely American compositions had won great favor in the musical world. 

I can't conceive of Terry Masey converting heathen but she and Ross 
Davis were missionaries — not China — our own New York ! 

A woman of international fame, noted for the uplift of women, was 
Belle Bethune. 

Maud Bowman was proprietor of the new "Sanitary Hamburger 
Stand" across from the campus. 

Ruth Brown with her "Diving Venuses," Betty Westland and Lucille 
Davidson, was rivalling Anette Kellermann for fame. 

The new Dean of Women of K. S. N. C. was Martha Tanner, who had 
for her secretary, Helen Watson. 

Clarice Yeo wore a sparkling solitaire and had planned on having 
Frances Boyles, Esq., perform the ceremony! 

Mr. Rausch had been very influential in gaining for our college the 
largest gymnasium in Ohio. 

The "Mad Hatter's Inn," of Greenwich Village, was owned by Hilde- 
garde O'Brien. Irene Moinet lived in the studio above and was a noted 
designer of women's costumes. 

Marian Jayne had changed her name to Jayne Marionesque and was 
an interpretive dancer. She did pugilistic training with the young hopefuls 
to keep her youthful vigor. 

The vision faded slowly away. I waited patiently for more to appear. 
Minute after minute passed. With all the courage I possessed I cried : 
"Tell me of myself; oh, tell me of myself!" 

The spell was broken. It may have been only a dream — time alone 
can tell.

Junior Class Roll 1921 




Junior Class 

Here's to the Junior Class of 1920 which came into existence with 
flying colors and has not yet known defeat. 

We were organized soon after the fall term began and immediately 
we cast our eyes about for something to do which was "different." On 
December 17, the class gave a novelty dance in honor of the Senior and 
College classes. Serpentine, confetti and punch were the chief diversions 
of the evening. It was reported that the gentlemen enjoyed themselves 
immensely, but we, the Junior class, do not take the credit for that. Of 
course we were congratulated. But did you ever bring horns from school 
a report with excellent written all over it? Do you remember what your 
father said? "Why! I expected nothing else. I received nothing but 
excellent marks when I was your age, too." 

A few more fellow members were added to our company at the begin- 
ning of the winter term. These members not only swelled our enrollment 
but also our treasury so that on February 12, the class gave a Valentine 
party in honor of the Faculty, Senior and College classes. During the 
intermission paper aeroplanes were given out for the amusement of the 
company. But if one should consider the matter from all sides one would 
surely come to the conclusion that the chief amusement was in watching 
our dignified and illustrious chaperones chasing the elusive aeroplanes. 

But we speak only of social events. We must not forget the faithful 
few who have so far made the name, Junior Class, looked upon with envy 
by all the sportsmen in the realm of basketball. In the basketball tourna- 
ment the Junior five held their own and brought the class colors flying 
from the strife and turmoil. 

Our hopes and aims for the future are that we may not only be vic- 
torious in school and athletics but also in every problem and difficulty 
which we must combat. 



K. S. N. C. Alumni Association 

The Alumni Association appreciates the fact that space has been 
given it in the Seniors' annual publication. It seems to indicate its increas- 
ing importance. 

The Association has grown rapidly in numbers since the first graduat- 
ing class in 1914. The large body of members responding to invitations 
for Home-Coming each year, and the big attendance at the K. S. N. C. 
dinner in Cleveland at the fall meeting of the N. E. 0. T. A. show a re- 
markably loyal spirit in an Association so young in years. Smaller organi- 
zations in counties and cities, too, show that K. S. N. C. holds a place in 
the thoughts of members who do not find it convenient to come to Kent 

Among the "ties that bind," one of the strongest is a publication 
printed at regular intervals, which enables graduates to keep in touch 
with their Alma Mater in a direct way. 

Our Alumni Association has become large enough to support a pub- 
lication of this kind. Let us hope that in the near future we shall have 
a good, live, newsy Alumni paper. 

There is every reason to believe, also, that K. S. N. C. Alumni Associa- 
tion should be the leaders in progressive educational thought in com- 
munities of Northeastern Ohio.

Off Campus 


Pardon me! Did you say "Off Campus?" Who What When? 

The Off Campus girls organized at a meeting held early in the fall of 
1920 at which time Miss Clarice Yeo was elected. President. Since her 
withdrawal at the end of the fall quarter Miss Moinet has filled her place. 
From the moment of its organization this group, "small but powerful," 
became very active. 

When — Where? — Many interesting events have taken place this 
year among the Off Campus girls, some cf which were the Marshmallow 
and Wiener Roast held November 11, 1920. Another pleasant evening 
was spent at the home of our former president, Miss Yeo. Many inter- 
esting games were played at the gathering and refreshments were served. 

One event we cannot forget was the Off Campus Luncheon, held 
March 10, 1921, in the Woman's League Room. This affair was attended 
by all members of the organization and the opinion was expressed by all 
that never before had they had a better time. Whether it was the good 
meal or the "congenial gathering" must of course remain unsettled. 

Basketball was by no means omitted from our activities. Many a 
day of hard practice was spent by the girls, and while we lost our first 
game, we said, ''Victory is sweet indeed, but sweeter still is it to lose 
and go bravely forward," and that is what we have done, still hoping, 
nevertheless, to win one last game. 

So you see the Off Campus group is by no means a missing link in 
this institution, Kent State Normal College, but a group that is eager to 
see "everything go," that is good and true for their old "Alma Mater." 
We sincerely wish for all future Off Campus girls, as well as Dormitory 
Girls, as much happiness in the school as we, the Off Campus Girls of 
1921, have found. 



Lowry Hall Activities 

The weekly House Meetings of Lowry Hall have brought about a 
spirit of fellowship and co-operation between Miss Gowans, Head Resi- 
dent, Miss Tanner, House President, and the Lowry girls. 

There have been several social events during the year, the most im- 
portant ones being "The Lowry Vaudeville," Christmas party and Home- 
Coming Breakfast. The "actors" and actresses who presented the vaude- 
ville felt rewarded for their efforts, by the hearty appreciation of the 
Moulton girls. The Christmas party was a real joy to all. The tree with 
its tinsel and glittering ornaments was the center of the merrymaking. 
Everyone in the house was remembered by a gift and crisp popcorn balls 
were the results of some good fairies' efforts. As the candles burned and 
finally flickered out, everyone joined in singing familiar songs. 

While the year draws to a close the girls all realize how much they 
have enjoyed their Lowry home. They all admire and respect their Head 
Resident, Miss Gowans. It is to be hoped that the Lowry Hall girls of 
the future will enjoy their home as much as the girls of 1921 have 
enjoyed it.

Polly Stiles to Juliet Crandall 

Will girls never change. This letter ivas written nearly a century ago. 

November 24, 1838. 
My dear, dear Juliet : 

I received your kind little billet this morning and much as I thank 
you for it, but could I have seen you instead of the line, how much happier 
I should have been. I am attending school at this place and enjoy myself 
well. I am studying French, Astronomy and Drawing. I wish my dear 
Juliet was here, are you not going to come here to school again ? The next 
term I came here, I looked around to see those with whom I was to asso- 
ciate, but where was my dearest Juliet. I could not find any to answer 
for her, although there were some lovely girls here, I'll assure you. You 
say you have been through this place since this term commenced, it 
was too bad that I could not have seen you. I am sure you could have 
called a few moments if no longer, I should have been very happy to 
have seen you. You say you have heard Mr. is paying his ad- 
dresses to me ; I would really like to know what you mean anid how you 
have heard such silly news. My dear girl do you not love your Pollj 
better than to credit such foolish stories, if you have believed them do 
it no longer. Will you be so kind as to tell me who it is ar,d how you 
have heard for I am sure I should know who I am keeping company 
with but I will not spend my time awriting on this silly subject. 

We have a singing school in this place taught by Mr. so 

of course you must know we have a good school. I have not attended 
as yet but I intend to soon and would be extremely glad if you were here 
to attend with me. 

Mary E. Blanchard is teaching school in Tully, eighteen miles from 
here. She is liked very well indeed. She has not lived at home much 
of any since last fall. Oh Juliet, Mr. Williams is married and 'don't you 
feel bad. I tried all I could to get him but it was of no use. I should 
thought you would have died of a broken heart. Did you? Miss Wilcox 
is still attending school here ; quite as pretty as ever, she often speaks 
of you ; she is not going to remain here longer than this term. My dear 
if you will accept this and promise not to expose it I will never send you 
such an ill written letter again, but will take more pains. It is true I 
had not time hardly to write a word but I am willing to get a black mark 
from one I love as dearly as yourself. Remember your ever true 


Polly Stiles. 

Do write soon.

Moulton Hall 

Sure they builded up a building, and they did it carefully, 

And each brick was moulded from a heart that beats with loyalty; 

And the beams were made of beaten truth, to strengthen 'gainst life's 

And the windows were of sunbeams, so golden and so warm ; 
And they peopled it with spirits, just to make the work complete, 
Young and gay and hopeful spirits, whom no trouble could defeat; 
Then they crowned it with a tower of hope, that touched ambition's call, 
And, when they had it finished, sure, they called it Moulton Hall. 
(Sung to tune of "A Little Bit of Heaven, Sure, They Called It Ireland") 

The Minutes for a House -Meeting 

Moulton Hall 

The thirteenth Moulton Hall house meeting was held in the music 
room, Friday, April 1. The meeting was called to order by Mrs. Bourne 
on account of the absence of the house officers. Mrs. Bourne asked the 
girls to make just a little more noise during study hours. To make the 
building look more home-like, Miss Edith Jacobs was unanimously elected 
to scatter peanut shells throughout the halls and on the stairways. The 
girls were requested to keep on their lights during the night because sev- 
eral had lately had nightmare and been found walking in their sleep. 

The screens have now been put on the windows, so it will be necessary 
for the girls to use the doors in coming into the building. On account of 
this inconvenience, five more minutes will be allowed for the time set for 
returning, making it 9 :35 P. M. instead of 9 :30 P. M. As spring has come 
it will no longer be necessary to obtain a late permit from the officers of 
the house or Mrs. Bourne to stay out after 9:30. It was requested that 
the announcement be made for the Normal Girls not to forget the town 
dance on Thursday evening. Everyone is expected to be there. It was 
also stated that the automobile rule had been withdrawn and anyone could 
go machine riding as long as one person in the dorm knew of it. Per- 
mission from home will not need to be obtained. A motion was made and 
seconded for the adjournment of this enjoyable meeting. 



Music Eleven 

"Small but mighty" is our motto. The Music 11 class of the fall term 
of our Junior year was large, very large, in fact abnormally so when you 
consider the class of the spring term of our Senior year. Few came for 
Music 12 and they grew fewer and fewer as terms progressed. But nothing 
is as enjoyable as a small class. The course in music appreciation, under 
Miss Shamel, was appreciated and has influenced a few more to enter the 
regular music classes. 

The orchestra of this year, although it made few appearances, I'm 
sure is the best K. S. N. C. ever possessed. 

Many of the girls who were in the Glee Club of last year, with the new 
members are furnishing the music for the commencement program. They 
were unable to give any numbers before commencement due to the fact 
that the girls seemed to be busy (an unusual condition at K. S. N. C), but 
nevertheless they are to be praised for answering the call when it came. 

For all of these various activities, and the inspiration from them, 
Bentley Ball and the Cleveland Symphony, you can blame no one but Miss 
Shamel. K. B. 


Why I Came to K. S. N. C. 

We are living in a period of rapid change in educational ideas, meth- 
ods and practices. The function of the teacher is to facilitate the natural 
learning activities of children, to give them the guidance and direction 
that will make them wider, more certain and more efficient. To do this 
-special qualifications and training are necessary. The desire to increase 
my efficiency as a teacher in the public schools induced me to come to 
K. S. N. C. 

This is a special school organized and conducted solely to prepare 
teachers for the public schools of Ohio. Training is offered in the specific 
subjects to be taught, related subject matter, and the principles and meth- 
ods that are necessary to give scientific character to the art of teaching. 
K. S. N. C. takes it for granted that an essential part of the training of 
teachers is to be found in practice under the direction of experts. There- 
fore, observation and practice are added to scholarship and professional 

Efficiency in the schoolroom alone does not necessarily mean efficient 
service to the state. Teaching is essentially a social process. It involves 
relationships with pupils and patrons, and the ability to work well with 
their representatives in the school system. 

Enrichment of experience is one of the most important of all educa- 
tional processes and cannot safely be left to chance. K. S. N. C. affords 
a splendid opportunity to secure a broader outlook on literature and 
life. The fundamental qualities in the personality of the teacher, sympa- 
thy, sincerity, justice, good breeding and idealism, are improvable with 
cultivation. The intelligence attained through group life develops within 
the teacher a proper respect for the rights and opinions of others. The 
widening of the outlook gives a truer perspective of our own work and 
enables us to see its significance more clearly. 

Increased earning capacity is also a justifiable reason for coming to 
K. S. N. C. The meager salaries of teachers have met widespread con- 
demnation. But when we teachers have undergone proper training and 
acquired requisite ability, our earning capacity will be increased and we 
shall receive better financial support. However, our aim shall ultimately 
be to broaden and deepen, to quicken and refine the lives of our pupils, and 
thereby raise the standards of life and citizenship in the community which 
we serve. M. E. M.

Y. W. C. A. 

Beside the intellectual and social organizations which sprang up in the 
fall of 1920, a thriving religious organization loomed into prominence. 
The organization which attracted our attention through its helpful and 
inspirational services on Sunday evenings was the Young Woman's Chris- 
tian Association. 

This organization was the first to greet the incoming students by a 
"Get Acquainted Party." This was the beginning of many pleasant social 
events of the year. On December tenth, the Christmas Bazaar was a 
most successful undertaking from both the social and financial standpoints. 
On February fifth, a "Ye Olden Time" party brought from the attics the 
hoops and basques of "Long Ago." The minuet was a delightful feature 
of the occasion. 

Some of the programs of the year were : A talk by President McGilvrey 
on "Character Building" ; an illustrated talk on his overseas work by 
Supt. Walls of the City Schools; "Interesting Churches," by Miss Williams 
and a Thanksgiving Program in which Miss Patrick and Miss Falkenhagen 
told of their Thanksgiving experiences while in France. 

The first six meetings of the winter term were devoted to a series 
of talks by Professor Rumold on ''Visions of the Bible." Mr. Rumold 
is a thorough student of the Bible an[d this, coupled with his own sincerity 
of purpose, make him a great inspiration and help to the students. During 
the spring quarter, Miss Davis gave two helpful talks on the topic, "The 
One Great Essential of Womanhood." 

Rev. Mr. Brown, Rev. Mr. Dobbin and Professor Manchester also 
afforded very interesting meetings by their timely talks. 

The Association this year was fortunate in having Miss Davis as 
faculty advisor and as president, Mrs. Ruth Damon, who has had the 
support of an unusually strong cabinet. 

The Y. W. C. A. has come to be a vital force in maintaining high 
ideals in the life of the students. The spirit radiated from this organiza- 
tion throughout the year has been a source of helpfulness, friendliness, 
and cheerfulness.

The Woman's League 

The Woman's League of Kent State Normal College has had a pros- 
perous year under the direction of the capable officers elected by the 
women students at the beginning of the school year, and Miss Bayliss, 
the Dean of Women. The President ivery promptly started various 
activities; our efficient Treasurer immediately collected the dues, and 
this combination of energy and money resulted in a series of profitable 
and enjoyable affairs. 

During the year the Executive Board held meetings on the first 
and third Mondays of each month. The members of the Board worked 
faithfully to further the service of the League in matters of a general 
interest to all women students. The questions which came before the 
Board ranged from order and discipline of individual groups to the social 
life of the entire student body. As the central organ of Student Govern- 
ment at Kent, the Executive Board of the Woman's League has made an 
effort every year to broaden the scope of self-government by enlarging 
its Constitution. This year special attention has been given to a discus- 
sion of future possibilities for Student Government and to a revision 
of the point system. 

Socially, the League has carried out several brilliant entertainments. 
The "Rotary Party" on December third, was greatly enjoyed by over 
two hundred students. 

In the winter quarter the Executive Board undertook the biggest 
enterprise ever carried out in the history of the League. The Tony Sarg 
Marionettes from the Punch and Judy Theater in New York City were 
brought to Kent, January seventeenth. Although a gigantic financial prop- 
osition for a student group to undertake, this unique and artistic enter- 
tainment was one of the most enjoyable and successful of any of the enter- 
tainments given in 1920-21. We shall not soon forget the agile little 
puppets who played so skillfully, Thackeray's "The Rose and the Ring." 
Through the efforts of the publicity committee working under the super- 
vision of Miss Bayliss, a large audience witnessed the performance. Over 
a thousand persons were in attendance from the College, Kent, Ravenna, 
Stowe, Kenmore and Streetsboro. 

In the spring term the Woman's League planted and dedicated, as 
it does annually, a tree in Woman's League row in front of the dormi- 
tories. A welcome party to the Mid-Spring students was given early in 

The Woman's League has every reason to be proud of its growth. 
Prom its beginning in 1915 it has developed steadily into a strong organi- 
zation. The revision of the Constitution in 1919-20 by a competent com- 
mittee of students has made possible more effective work in all depart- 
ments of the League. 

The Patriotic Tea on Armistice Day, 1919, the Dramatic Readings by 
Miss Finch followed by a dance in honor of the Army and Navy Legion 


of Kent, and the dedication of the Woman's League tree to the Kent 
College men who died in service were the outstanding features of 1919-20. 
The Big Sisters and the College Sings fostered by the Woman's League 
promote school spirit and are valued parts of our college life.

An Appreciation 

The work which the Woman's League has carried out could not have 
been accomplished without the advice given it by Miss Bayliss. She has 
been the mother of the League and has watched it grow. We are indebted 
to her for our beginning of Student Government. She has always been 
faithful to us and ever ready to further the welfare of the college. 


"The Rose and the Ring" 

If we dared to brave the "Army of Paflagonia" or to cultivate the 
friendship of "Captain Cutusoff Hedzoff" and were sure that "The 
Lion" would use great discretion and not take us for rebellious subjects, 
many of us would be buying our tickets for Paflagonia and Crim Tartary, 
and hastening to these very kingdoms to see just how these interesting 
people really act in private life. That is, all this would happen if we had 
lived ten or twenty thousand years ago, but since we are living so many 
years after it all occurred, we must be very practical and remember that 
after all these funny little characters are only marionettes. 

Marionettes, or puppets as they are often called, have furnished amuse- 
ment for many, many years, and although we have made great advances 
in stage productions since the early ages, as a whole we are still the 
same kind of people at heart. We can laugh just as heartily over the 
actions of Barbara Griselda, Countess Gruffanuff ; or feel as deep sympa- 
thy for poor little Betsinda, as those people who lived so many years ago 
did for like characters in their productions. 

To fully appreciate Tony Sarg's production "The Rose and the Ring," 
we must keep in mind the fact that the wonder of it all isn't so much the 
plot of the play, but that the little inanimate objects that do the playing 
can be made to become such real, live actors. Didn't you distinctly hear 
'His Majesty King Valeroso" snore? And didn't you see Jenkins Gruffa- 
nuff" turn into a door knocker right before your very eyes? Who but 
real actors could do such things? Such is the impression we gain of the 
entire play, our attention becomes so wrapped in the characters, that we 
lose ourselves in the spirit of the story. 

However, if these characteristics do not awake a sense of apprecia- 
tion in some, surely these have a sense beauty which must be strongly 
appealed to in the more than beautiful color effects in the scenes. When 
"Fairy Blackstick" appears, the fairy atmosphere is created by the ex- 
quisite colorings until one nearly believes that she is a true fairy, and 
that one is getting a peep into fairyland itself for just an instant. 

In fact, there is a beauty in the child-like simpliciy of the whole play 
so pleasing that in the end we feel like joining "Prince Bulbo" in saying 
'Oh, goody, goody, goody!" to think that Mr. Thackeray should ever have 
conceived such a story, and that Mr. Sarg should have "trained" his mari- 
onettes to act the parts and allow us to see them.

the Home Economics movement. 

Social Functions 

On November tenth, nineteen-twenty, the Household Arts Club had an 
enjoyable meeting in the parlors of Moulton Hall. The first part of 
the evening was spent in contests, after which refreshments were served. 
In keeping with Armistice Day, Miss Patrick gave a very interesting talk 
of her experiences in France. 

On Saturday evening, February the nineteenth, the Club entertained 
the Alumni of the Department at a dinner at the home of Miss Nixon. 
Many old acquaintances were renewed and new ones made.

A. E. S. Literary Society

Vice-President Arwilda Pim 

Secretary and Treasurer Ruth Brown 

S erg eant-at- Arms Herbert Walter 

Are you surprised to see a literary section in the annual this 
year? Perhaps you are, but in the future annuals it will be one of the 
important sections. This year it has had only its beginning. 

Early this fall all the students who were interested in debate or lit- 
erary work met in Miss Davis' room to discuss the possibilities of form- 
ing a literary society at K. S. N. C. After discussing many plans for a 
literary society we dec dec! that by co-operating wa could have an enthusi- 
astic, interesting and helpful literary society in our college. Now in order 
to make this kind of a society successful we had to be organized, so the 
following officers were elected : President, Howard Graham ; Vice Presi- 
dent, Arwilda Pim ; Sec-Treasurer, Ruth Brown, and Sergeant-at-Arms, 
Herbert Walter. 

Soon after our organization we were interested in the name which 
we should give our society. The following names were suggested : Ken- 
tonian and Alpha Epsilon Sigma ; the latter name was chosen. 

The programs have been varied. Essays, readings, talks and debates 
as well as music have found their way on programs which never fail to 


prove interesting. And who will not remember our initiation meeting 
which was held in the gymnasium? 

We as charter members are truly glad that K. S. N. C. has a literary 
society and we feel confident that those who return next year will con- 
tinue the work. You will, won't you? 


The year 1920-1 has seen the first adventure of Kent State Normal 
College in the realm of inter-collegiate debate. We are in to stay. We 
believe in the individual benefits that accrue from the practice of for- 
ensics, and we are equally firm in our belief that much good comes to our 
school from activities of this sort. We are of the opinion, however, that 
henceforth we shall insist upon "no-decision" debates. The one thing 
that has marred the results of inter-collegiate debates in the past has 
been the striving by fair means and foul to secure the decision of the 
judges. The decision has been the one thing sought rather than an open- 
minded and judicial consideration of some question of public moment. 
The "no-decision" debate was tried this year by Michigan, Chicago and 
Northwestern Universities with success and satisfaction. 

The impetus for our debate in December last was a challenge from 
Bowling Green to meet them in a double scholastic clash. Twelve of 
our students took on extra work three times a week and two teams were 
evolved. The question discussed was the complicated railroad Trans- 
portation Act of 1920, the affirmative side being defended at home and 
the negative at Bowling Green. The latter school won both decisions by 
such a narrow margin that little sting was left for Kent in the defeat. 
The consensus of opinion in both schools was, that all the teams did 
exceptionally good work. Much interest was developed in our own school 
that we feel will carry over to next year. In fact, it is already bearing 
fruit as every other meeting of the A. E. S. literary society is being de- 
voted to debating. All work in debate is in charge of Miss Davis, head 
of the Department of Reading and Effective Speaking.

The Home -Coming 

One of the pleasant events of the year was the Home-Coming. No one 
from Kent needs to be told what Home-Coming means to both school and 
former students. The five hundred visitors here for the two day program 
gave visual evidence of the popularity of this mid-winter celebration. 
Miss Davis and Miss Bayliss should be complimented upon the success 
of this and former Home-Comings, for it has been from their enthusiasm 
that others have obtained inspiration to carry through this activity. 

The Home-Coming this year opened with a special assembly arranged 
by Miss Shamel, head of the Music Department and Miss Davis, head of the 
Public Speaking Department. Special music was provided and a program 
given covering the past, present and future of Kent College. The pro- 
gram follows : 

Music — "For You" Mrs. Culp 

"The Past of Kent College" Miss McCarthy 

"The Present of Kent College" Miss Porter 

Music — "Two Roses" Miss Marshall 

"The Future of Kent College" Miss Bigalow 

In the evening the play was presented. This is given space at another 
place in this book. 

Saturday at noon a banquet was held at the Franklin Hotel, with 
places for three hundred and fifty guests. If never before, the Franklin 
Hotel management realized that Kent College was on the hill. President 
McGilvrey spoke briefly of the College and his hopes for the future and all 
present were confident that his hopes would become realities. The former 
students of Kent evidently appreciate the constructive leadership of Presi- 
dent McGilvrey during his years at Kent, if one is to judge by the recep- 
tion given him at this time. It is probable they appreciate the fact that 
when a college makes as much progress in eight years as some colleges 
make in fifty years, it is due to an able president. 

Mrs. Damon spoke for the students and gave a very clever toast to the 
classes represented. Miss Richardson spoke for the alumni body. As 
president she greeted all old friends and urged them to give their support 
to the organization. Mr. Manchester spoke for the faculty. 

In the afternoon Kent defeated Bowling Green for the basketball 
championship. This was a closely contested game and gave the crowd 
more thrills than any other game of the season. 

Saturday evening the visitors gathered at Moulton Hall for a recep- 
tion and dance. This was the last event of the 1920-21 Home-Coming, but 
the next Home-Coming is started because everyone has made plans for a 
visit another year. 


The Annual College Play 

The College Play of 1921 will long be remembered as a production of 
unusual merit. In professional language it might well be cited as a 

Jerome K. Jerome's comedy in four acts, "Fanny and the Servant 
Problem," was the play enacted on February 18, 1921, with this cast: 

Fanny Miss Margaret Wilson 

Vernon Wetherell, Lord Bantock Mr. Herman Reusch 

Her Husband 

The Misses Wetherell ( ™ rs - * u , th D am ,°, n , 

TT , , . -, I Miss Helen kuckhck 

Her Aunts by Marriage 

Martin Bennet Mr. Leo X. Johnston 

Her Butler 

Susannah Bennet Miss Agnes Kalt 

Her Housekeeper 

Jane Bennet Miss Gladys Stackhouse 

Her Maid 

Ernest Bennet Mr. Charles Campbell 

Her Second Footman 

Honoria Bennet Miss Betty Westland 

Her Second Maid 

Dr. Freemantle Mr. Cards Talkington 

Her Local Physician 

George P. Newte Mr. Fred Shepherd 

Her Former Business Manager 

"Our Empire" 

Her Quondam Companions 

England Miss Donna Bigalow 

Australia Miss Marian Jayne 

Wales Miss Betty Phelan 

Africa Miss Lyda Marshall 

Scotland Miss Nelle Shannon 

Ireland Miss Lucille Davison 

Canada Miss Kathleen Boyd 

Straits Settlements Miss Margaret Hawn 

India • Miss Dorothy Thorne 

"Fanny," a retired chorus girl, having won the affection of the dash- 
ing, but sensible young Lord Bantock, carried a difficult leading part 
with ability seldom seen on the amateur stage. She endeared herself 
to the audience as well as to her husband's two charming, conventional 
and typically English maiden aunts. Every part was well taken from the 
haughty and highly respectable Bennet to the bevy of pert chorus girls. 
Bennet's worthy wife, Susannah, and all the twenty-one other members 
of the Bennet family were above reproach. Dr. Freemantle and George 
P. Newte, Fanny's former business manager, bore themselves consistently 
with their respective professions. 


The cast appreciated the assistance of Miss Patrick of the Household 
Science Department in making certain costumes and of Miss Pottorf of 
the Art Department in her contribution of a life-like portrait of "the 
first Lady Bantock." 

Due credit must be gnen to Miss Susan B. Davis, Head of the De- 
partment of Public Speaking for the success of the play. Her ability 
to discover and train characters for the cast and to produce a finished 
and artistic performance complete in all details from stage setting to 
interpretation of lines has long been recognized. The stage effects this 
year were especially pleasing as a result of Miss Davis' care in design- 
ing the stage set which was painted under her direction by C. M. Currier 
of Cleveland, and her skill in working out artistic lighting effects. 

The audience which witnessed the College Play was larger than in 
any previous year. An unusually large number of the alumni returned 
for the evening, many of them being members of casts of our former 
College Plays. The proceeds were divided between Permanent Stage Fund 
and the Chestnut Burr, the latter receiving two-thirds of the net proceeds.

The Normal Exchange 

There is no other activity at Kent, which all students, training school 
and faculty, participate in more freely or enjoy as much, as we do that 
of the Normal Exchange. It supplies many a need to both outer and 
inner demands, for along with the powder puff or hair nets, sweaters 
or pennants, to say nothing of the various school supplies, we feast upon 
cookies and candies with many a good joke thrown in. 

Just rush in between classes to sharpen that pencil at the convenient 
sharpener on the door casing and you'll spy dozens of things on display 
you suddenly realize you thought you'd have to get down town and you'll 
save money every time if you return to buy at the Exchange. Why, 
even the folks down town have learned they can get better and cheaper 
athletic goods by coming up here. 

Have you ever really examined that small room to see just what is 
in it? Not splendid fixtures, for you won't even see the improvised 
counter, your eyes will be kept so busy gazing at the wide variety of 
articles. There is that second hand book you need ; then too, here is your 
chance to order your next new text. Your note book is in want of more 
paper, you've just lost your eraser, and there is the calendar you've 
wanted and you didn't know you could get a fountain pen so reasonably. 
You thought of course that you'd have to go down town to have your 
films but what a relief, no matter for what you ask the answer comes 
back, "Sure, we have it!" Yes — and there is even the latest athletic 
news on the bulletin board. 

What is that extra lock for on the door? Oh, other people liked the 
stock too and a sure enough burglar once broke in. Maybe he was after 
some of those good sandwiches Mrs. Rausch makes. 

How did this thriving institution originate with its now two hundred 
daily customers? Of course you know Charles Rausch. In 1919 he went 
to training camp and returned with an idea, suggested by the Maine State 
University second hand book store. Through Mr. McGilvrey's kindness, 
the room was obtained. Mr. Olson suggested the name. A committee 
consisting of the faculty and the proprietor was formed as trustees, and 
with ten whole dollars, Mr. Rausch began to develop his idea. John 
Welser then appeared on the scene, liked the looks of the venture, added 
ten more and we all like the result so well that it now takes five clerks 
daily to supply our wants. In June both of these men get their B. S. 
degree and others are to assume their responsibilities but wherever they 
may go we wish them well and we are assured that their ambition and 
unfailing courtesy will bring them still greater successes in the days 
to come.

High Lights of K. S. N. C. 

The year 1920-21 has been a happy and busy time for Kent State 
Normal College. The spirit of co-operation and good fellowship has been 
shown in many ways. 

Perhaps the organization of athletic teams promoted this spirit as 
much as any other one factor. Last year no one imagined that a foot- 
ball team was within the possibilities of our college, because we hadn't 
the first requisite — men. This year we have men enough in school to 
organize a football team. The boys practiced faithfully and played some 
good games. One College sent their team here for a scheduled game. 
When they came they declined to play. Their reason was that the 
weather was too inclement, but it was not too bad for our boys to play 
and for our girls to gather en masse to help our boys win by their 
cheering. It was quite evident to us that the incoming team was scared. 
They did not expect to find well trained players. When they found men 
ready to win their ardor cooled and they went home without playing 
the game. 

The girls have played some splendid basketball games this year. 
In the tournament which took place during the winter term, the Juniors 
won. That speaks well for athletics for this year and next, too. 

The co-operative spirit was shown again by the help the girls gave 
in promoting ticket selling, it's for our entertainments. Tony Sarg's Mar- 
ionettes was especially enjoyed as a Woman's League affair. Seats were 
sold rapidly for the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra Concert and for the 
Magician's program of amusement. 

The organization and promotion of the A. E. S. Literary Society has 
been another source of our happiness. The co-operation too, of the girls 
and faculty members in making interesting and profitable Y. W. C. A. 
meetings has been appreciated by all of us. 

The real high lights of the year have been the beams coming from the 
general spirit of co-operation, helpfulness and happiness. We bequeath 
this as a legacy to the students of the years to come, and go away much 
richer for having given to the welfare of our school. 


"Logan Westfall— Reformer" 



Dr. George Melville Laurence, A. B., B. S., of Hardshell Institute of Theology 
will address the Student Body on the following subjects: 
Profanity — Its effect on the mind. 
Tobacco — The curse of the age. 
The evils of dancing. 

Thursday, June 7 — 8 O'Clock 
College Auditorium 
Attendance Required 

Dean Wells drove the final tack, stepped back and viewed his handiwork with satis- 

During the day most of the students of Bradfield read the notice with varying de- 
grees of approval. There were none of these who eyed the notice with a lesser degree 
of approbation than Jimmy Troyer. 

Now Bradfield was a small Co-ed school, close enough to Pittsburg to make 
the shows at the Pitt and Shubert the leading topic of conversation. 

Jimmy Troyer was a Junior at Bradfield. He ranked 100 per cent, on the athletic 
field — 75 per cent, in the lecture room, and 100-f per cent, in painting things the color 
the Bolsheviks use in Russia for their flags. Jimmy regarded the notice that heralded 
the approach of the eminent reformer, Dr. George Melville Laurence, with much disgust. 
As a result there ensued a meeting of Jimmy and several other kindred spirits in Jim- 
my's room, at which meeting deep plots were plotted and dark schemes schemed. 

Logan Westfall was a young and promising, mostly promising, lawyer in Pitts- 
burg and incidentally Jimmy's cousin. A telegram to Westfall, and he, somberly attired 
in a pair of shell rimmed glasses, sideburns, a collar that buttoned in the back and a 
suit of clerical cut, boarded the train that carried the Reverend Doctor Laurence to 

Now if the very charming and attractive girl who sat across the pullman from 
Westfall had not dropped her handkerchief there would have been no story. How- 
ever she did drop it. 

Westfall retrieved the handkerchief. When the charming lady smiled a big 
brown-eyed, "Thank you, so much!" to Westfall, cupid must have shot him with 
a machine gun instead of the more common bow and arrow. Naturally a conver- 
sation followed. A conversation in which Westfall became quite confidential. In 
fact he told her the purpose of his visit to Bradfield and also the deep plot in all 
its details. 

The train drew into Bradfield. Dr. George Melville Laurence, A. B., B. S., was 
met by a committee, of young men, who escorted him to a quiet barn on the out- 
skirts of Bradfield. Here he was securely tied until the lecture should be over. 

Dr. George Melville Laurence, A. B., B. S. — otherwise, Logan Westfall, was 
met by the President of the school, who motored him to a reception at the Presi- 
dent's home in honor of the lecturer. 

The hour for the lecture came and Westfall found himself on the platform listen- 
ing to the closing remarks of Dean Thomas' introductory speech; "I take great pleas- 
ure in presenting to you, one who will discuss these problems of great importance. 
Dr. George Melville Laurence, A. B., B. S., of the Hardshell Theological Institute — Dr. 

Westfall rose. He bowed to Dean Thomas. He bowed to the audience. He 
cleared his throat, "Ladies and Gentlemen." 


An usher opened a door at the rear of the auditorium to admit a belated arrival. 
In stepped the charming young lady Westfall had met on the train, accompanied by 
an elderly, dignified, white-haired gentleman. 

"Hist," came a hoarse whisper from one of the wings. It was Jimmy. "Beat 
it, Log! It's the Doctor!!" 

Logan grasped the situation. The girl was the daughter of Doctor Laurence! 
He coughed, he stammered. But Westfall was not a lawyer for nothing. The plan 
called for a burlesque lecture — he'd give them a real one instead. 

"Ladies and Gentlemen," Westfall started again, "We are met here this evening 
to consider three of the greatest evils confronting the American people today. I refer 
to Profanity, Tobacco and Dancing. Let us examine the first of these great evils. Let 
us consider it in all its manifold forms. Let us consider its cause and its myriad 
effects. Let us consider the result of its use on the mind of the American youth." 

For two hours Westfall lectured while the student body groaned and suffered, 
while the faculty nodded its approval and applauded his remarks — each applause 
giving him more courage. 

At length Westfall drew his remarks to a conclusion. 

"My friends, I thank you for your kind attention. I trust that my remarks have 
fallen on fertile soil, that here in this college you may take up the work of moulding 
aright the minds and morale of your youth. I thank you." 

Westfall walked from the stage. Dr. Laurence was waiting for him. Westfall 
tried to escape but the Doctor grasped his hand. 

"Young man, that was a remarkable lecture! I myself could not have bettered 
it! Allow me to congratulate you." 

Westfall gasped. 

Two big, brown eyes laughed at him. 

Here the story ends except that Dr. George Melville Laurence has given up 
lecturing. His son-in-law, Logan Westfall, has taken up his work. 

— Margaret Hawn. 

Madcap Forever 


Having delivered himself of this announcement, Jimmy Alarm Clock became silent, 
his honest open face surveying the tumbled heaps of bed clothes before him. 

As though annoyed by his calm scrutiny, one heap stirred, sat up, winked at 
Jimmy and receded into the bed clothes. 

Moments elapsed before the other heap responded to his urgent cry. Sleepily 
rubbing her eyes, she sat up and gazed into Jimmy's face and then things began to 

"Peggy Bannister, you sleepyhead, Jimmy says it's seven o'clock and you know 
what a slow poke you are." A well aimed cushion, accompanying this announcement, 
had little effect on the sleeper. A second one proving equally ineffective, Joyce turned 
to her roommate in despair. 

"Peg, do get up; you know you never can get to breakfast in fifteen minutes, and 
I cannot see why you wait until the very last minute. It just tires me all out hurry- 
ing you. And probably I shall have to roam all over the dormitory, collecting your 
belongings. I distinctly remember you threw your shoe over the transom into Bab's 
room last night and goodness only knows where it is now. I have told you before 
that when you possess only one pair of wearable shoes you should not be so reckless 
with them." 

Still no reply. 


"Peg, are you dead?" Joyce cried, exasperated, and turned to see the object 
of her remarks, sitting up in bed, joyously clapping her hands. 

"What a bee-u-tee-ful lecture!" she said with sparkling eyes. "I feel so penitent 
to think how wicked I've been. But, honestly, Joyce," becoming serious, "don't you 
think I have improved? I got to breakfast on time once this week and I haven't had 
a serious accident except that time I sat on my hat and spilled the coffee on Sybil's 
new dress and broke my watch and — " 

"Yes, and lost your ring and burned the rug and a few other things," Joyce 
broke in quickly. "Really, an amazing record, perfectly angelic. We girls were just 
remarking last night how good you are becoming all of a sudden." 

"And is that all?" Peggy asked sweetly. "I am so glad you girls appreciate my 

Joyce looked witheringly at Peggy as she collected her books ready to leave, and 
thunder clouds were gathering on her brow for Peggy was very trying. 

"Looks like a storm," Peggy remarked demurely, gazing out upon a sunny world 
in which not a storm cloud dared show itself. 

And then, seeing the look on her friend's face, she was all contrition. "Joyce, 
dear, I am so sorry, but I just could not help it. I do love to hear you preach. I 

mean to be good but luck is against me. Now for instance, that time when . 

Mercy sakes! Seven thirty! And I was going to breakfast. Say, honey, you just 
darn my stockings, please, dear, and I will slip in and see if I can find my shoe. I 
may have to bribe Bab to let me have it fcr she didn't approve of my throwing it 
in the first place; said it waked her up; terrible disposition that child has. I'll be gone 
only a second," and away she flew but stopped half way to call back, "Listen Joyce, 
do iron my blouse too, while I am gone. I forgot to last night and I just have to 
have it." 

In Bab's room several other girls were gathered studying diligently, when Peggy 
entered. When they saw who the new arrival was they groaned. 

"Well that certainly is a warm reception," Peggy said. "I didn't intend to stay 
long, but now I shall make a regular visit." 

"Shoo, Peg, you always bother us," cried one, attempting to lead the visitor into 
the hall. 

"Take her away," interposed Sybil, "she will surely spill something on you or 
try to burn up the place." 

"Experience is a dear teacher, isn't it} Sybil?" asked Marian, her boon com- 

The protests were violent but Peggy sat placidly listening to their entreaties. 

"Please Peg," said Bab, "we know you do not want to study but we just have 
to. That test will be the worst yet and psychology always was so hard for us." 

Peggy was horror stricken and characteristically wrung her hands and tore 
her hair. 

"Test!" she groaned. "I had forgotten all about it, and I have not looked at my 
book for a week, and, besides, I positively do not know anything, anyway." 

Forgotten was the shoe, and poor Joyce, patiently darning and ironing for her. 

"Girls if you love me, tell me quick everything I should know, and I promise 
to be good forever and ever." 

"Honestly, Peggy, do you mean that?" questioned Marian, remembering the 
many times that she had suffered at Peggy's hands. 

"Yes, yes, I will begin this very day, only do hurry and tell me." 

And because Peggy was Peggy, they told her, and because Peggy was Peggy, she 
immediately forgot, but she was none the less grateful. With profuse thanks she 


left them and fled to her room, eager to begin a mad cramming before that ter- 
rible test. 

Joyce looked up questioningly as she entered. "Well, I finished your things. Did 
you get your shoe all right?" she asked. 

Peggy looked scornful, "No. You will have to get that," she replied, seizing her 
book and beginning to study fiercely, not knowing for several minutes that her book 
was upside down. 

"And Joyce," she continued, "you may do my hair and , oh, dear, 

why did I have to be so ignorant?" 

An hour passed and still Peggy studied on, oblivious to her surroundings. At 
intervals the girls would come in and watch, for it really was a novel sight, and 
would then return to have a good laugh. 

Finally, Peggy laid her book aside, with a sigh. 

"Joyce, I am cured. From now on I cease to be a scatterbrain. I shall study 
from dawn until dark, and never have a bit of fun again. I shall ." 

"Hear! Hear!" cried Joyce and a crowd of girls immediately assembled, and 
Peggy repeated her announcement for their benefit. 

"Oh, it worked, it worked," they sang, amid laughter. 

Peggy looked puzzled. 

"It was all a joke, about the test," Bab explained. "We never expected you 
would take it so seriously. And it was such fun. I can just see our scatterbrained 
Peggy studying as though her life depended on it." 

"But I am cured," Peggy reiterated. "Never again will I play another joke or do 
another crazy thing. I am cured, absolutely. My spirit is broken," and she looked 
dejectedly out of the window, but her face suddenly lighted up. 

"Say, girls, there goes Marian down the street. I have thought of the most 
delightful joke to play on her. Come on, quick, everybody." 

Then she wondered why they all laughed.

Kent, Rah ! Kent, Rah ! 
Rah! Rah! Kent! 

This year has marked a new era for our college in athletics, for never 
before have we had a real football team with full equipment. It all started 
when the students themselves increased the student activity fee for ath- 
letics in order that we girls could give vent to our feelings through yells. 
It was then that athletics first leaped towards success. 

Well do we remember the evenings in the fall, when with the sun 
sinking in the golden west and the shadows of Izzie Collins and Ruth 
Brown lengthening across the field, we could view twenty-one boys who 
with heaving and throbbing hearts were working strenuously towards the 
goal line. Out on the field there was also our really honest-to-goodness 
coach, Mr. Paul Chandler by name, who believes in both thinking and do- 
ing. There was our "Exchange" man, Mr. Welser, who was our business 
manager, and Mr. Moyer, the captain. 

Not only the boys, but the girls as well, took part in football. Prob- 
ably the most remarkable campaign by the girls was the snake dance 
throughout the town, one cold, crisp evening before the game with Bowl- 
ing Green. In and out of shops and movies the screaming and jolly line 
ran, bellowing forth our yells and songs, which in no small way interpreted 
our deep loyalty and fighting spirit for K. S. N. C. We did not win the 
next day but we played fair and square which is really the true test of 

We even had mascots at one of our games. When the boys went to 
Ashland, along with them tripped three of our girls. They cheered for 
Kent until the hills resounded with their music, at last waking Ashland 
from its slumber. But all good things cannot last forever so the foot- 
ball season came to a close. Before the team disbanded, Mr. Carnahan 
was chosen as the captain for the coming year. 

Basketball next came into its own. It began in full earnest making 
such a plucky team that we won many games. The girls with the help of 
Katty Boyd as cheer leader urged the boys on to victory by their melod- 
ious voices. The season had only started when the weather grew warmer, 
so basketball, too, came to a close. 


In this stage of the world's development the women are demanding 
equal rights and privileges with the men. Just so the girls of Kent de- 
manded equal rights in basketball. Each section gathered a squad of 
girls, elected a business manager and captain and then set to work to 
organize a fast and non-beatable team. 

The tournament began on Monday evening, March 14. The first game 
was between the Juniors and Off-Campus teams. Each squad did justice 


to their former practice, the spirit running high until the bitter end. 
When the whistle blew, the Juniors were victors with a score of 7-3. 

Immediately following, the Seniors contested with the College sec- 
tion. Each played a splendid game urged on by the pep of their class- 
mates. The game resulted in a score of 3-0 in favor of the College 

The games continued for three days, the College playing the Off- 
Campus, winning by one point, the Juniors winning over the Seniors by 
a score of 7-3, the Seniors running up a score of 9 points over the Off- 
Campus group, and the last game being between the Juniors and College 
section, the Juniors winning by 11 points. Thus the tournament ended 
with the Juniors as Champions. 

As we look back upon the record that has been made in all of our 
games, both boys and girls, we can feel justly proud of all that they have 
accomplished for we have at last made a good start in sports. It is up 
to the future students of Kent State Normal to uphold the reputation 
that we have gained. We have lighted the candle and the rest that come 
after us must hold the light high, guiding all who need to be shown the 

So we, the old students of Kent Normal, wish you the best of luck in 
all that you attempt and may you know that — 

"Our hearts, our hopes, our prayers, our tears, 
Our faith triumphant o'er our fears, 
Are all with thee, are all with thee."

Can You Beat It? 

Winchester Cartridge stepped down from the train, grasped his 
suitcase in one hand and started up Main Street. He had returned to 
Kent, after a winter of teaching, to attend the summer session at the 
College. Winchester entered the Princess restaurant where his handsome, 
laughing face and curly hair attracted much attention from a group of 
College girls at an adjoining table. After eating a light repast of ham 
and eggs and mince pie a-la-mode, Cartridge found a suitable rooming 
place and then went up to the College on the hill where he was duly 
enrolled for the summer term. 

Winchester began his studies with every intention of devoting himself 
to them, but there was a girl, Melba Djer Kiss, who worked in a drug 
store down on Main Street. Winchester first encountered her when 
purchasing cough drops for his landlady. Melba was undoubtedly good 
looking, with flaxen hair, large blue eyes and dimpled cheeks. She was 
very lady-like, carried herself with a little self-conscious stiffness and 
answered Winchester's easy young-man-of-the-world advances with polite 
brevity. In that first interview some attraction, some fascination, drew 
his interest. Then he got into the habit of dropping into the drug store 
daily, on one excuse or another, purchasing candy, cigarettes and other 
things that he hardly knew how to dispose of. There swiftly grew in 
his spirit one of those strange absorbing fascinations peculiar to youth. 

It took Winchester nearly a week of brief purchasing visits and the 
employment of his greatest skill before he could break through her first 
reserve. At his jokes Melba stared coolly, but after she had learned his 
name and had become accustomed to his personality she would giggle and 
answer him. After the delivery of her repartee she had a trick of catching 
her lower lip with an even row of little white teeth, and looking at him 
wide-eyed to see how he would take it. Winchester found this delightful. 

Nevertheless, the drug store became a most unhandy meeting ground. 
People were always coming in to be waited upon in the most annoying 
fashion and took the most useful time in fussing over their silly pur- 
chases, serenely oblivious to a glaring young man in the background. 
And, then, too, the counter with its glass cases was always between them. 
Somehow it cut off confidences, as a barrier against really getting together 
and talking. Winchester had as yet no idea or thought of caressing Melba, 
but it would be rather pleasant to not have that old counter between them. 

"What time do you get away from this hole, anyhow?" he asked her 
one day. 

"We don't close until six o'clock," she told him. 

This was an awkward hour for Winchester because his absence at 
dinner would be objected to and would require some sort of an explana- 
tion. Nevertheless, he said, "Can't I see you then?" 


"Oh, I've got to go straight home to dinner, and then help mamma 
with the dishes !" 

Cartridge had a bright idea. "Well, you don't stay open on Sunday !" 
he pointed out. "Will you go to Brady Lake with me on Sunday?" 

She considered a moment, looking down, the wild rose on her fair 
cheek deepening. "I should be very pleased to," she answered. 

"Where do you live?" asked Winchester. 

For some reason she did not want to tell him that. "I will meet you 
at the beach at three o'clock," she told him, nor would she consider any 
other arrangement. 

Winchester was at the beach fifteen minutes before the hour. A little 
past three she joined him and they turned up the hard beach and fell 
into step. Winchester realized with a start of surprise that she was a 
much smaller girl than he had thought. The drug store surroundings had 
invested her with a fictitious height. 

Cartridge was full of spirit and gamboled about like a colt. He shied 
pebbles at the water. He selected flat stones and sent them skipping 
across the lake. He found an admirable skipping rope and used it with 
the half-forgotten steps of his childhood. He began to tease Melba ; to 
dash in, push her and dash out again in avoidance of her slap. With all 
this he managed to fluster her, succeeded in deepening the wild rose color 
of her cheeks, even mussed up her Sunday correctness of raiment. 

Melba seemed to know all the possibilities of a certain place near 
the beach for she led Winchester to a tiny ledge which had just room for 
two to sit. 

"Isn't this a wonder!" cried Winchester. 'Made to order! How 
did you happen to know of it?" 

But Melba, discreetly did not answer this question. She disposed 
herself with great deliberation and leaned back against the rocky wall. 

"I always like it here," she commented. 

"It seems to be sort of private." She was staring fixedly out over 
the lake. The angle of vision of her eyes being such that she could not 
see what Winchester was doing. As a matter of fact Winchester was 
looking at her, and she was perfectly aware of it. 

He experienced a warm, breath-taking sensation when he dropped 
his hand to his side and found it in contact with hers. Her hand was 
soft and pink, unroughened by coarse work. She did not withdraw her 
hand for some moments during which time Winchester sat almost breath- 
less. He soon found that she did not particularly object to his holding 
her hand, but made quite a fuss when he put his arm around her waist. 
After due and decent struggle she permitted him to sit so. She became 
truly indignant, however, when he tried to kiss her and it took him some 
time to smooth her down. 


Suddenly Winchester, overcome by the great love which isurgdd 
through his heart, dropped to his knees and cried, "Melba, will you be 
mine?" The astonished girl turned six or eight different colors but 
finally having reached the desired shade answered in a low tone, "Yes, 
dear." Late that night they returned to Kent. 

The next morning the landlady became suspicious when she noticed 
that Cartridge was full of powder, and questioned him closely. He finally 
revealed the secret and preparations were made at once for the marriage. 

As they came out of the church after the ceremony, Winchester 
turned to his wife and said, "Just think, dear, if my landlady had not 
needed cough drops, I might never have met you !"

Moulton Girls to the one "whom the angels named Lenore." The 
House President. 

Dear Guardian Shepard: 

Oh, Lenore, why were thy not up at the hour of two this morning. 
Thou would have gazed upon the sight of thy young life, for of thy 
sainted cares, bedecked in brilliant colored robes, seated upon chairs 
of wood round a lame table, with an injured lamp, trumping aces. 
As the evening progressed, apples were brought forth from their hiding 
places under the bed, henceforth being carefully washed with ivory soap, 
gum had been discarded to perform the painful task of digestion. 

We are as always before and ever after. 

Your Little Sheep. 

Coach Chandler has an appetite 

Scarce found in any man, 
I heard a tale the other night 

I'll tell it if I can. 
That he upon his table found 

A note that bade him come 
Down into the cooking room. 

Here's how the sweet words run: 
"Two absolutely good cream puffs 

By you can soon be had 
From the Domestic Science Room 

If you wish to come, real bad." 

Mr. Chandler — "Red is an abstraction." 

Some member of class looking at Nellie Morgan — "Nellie's hair must 
be an abstraction." 

Nell Morgan after reading in Dewey that reasons have weight — "I 
must be a reason." 

Ruth Bechtel— "I took a cold down to the nurse." 
Beulah Sommer — "And I suppose that when you got there you took 
a chair." 


Mr. Stopher took his class in Education to observe a first grade read- 
ing lesson. One child was given a card with the word father on it and 
told to match it with one of the pictures in the front of the room. The child 
then runs back to Mr. Stopher and gives him the card.
